EU-US Summit

November 6, 2009 at 8:00 am

Leaders from the European Union and the United States gathered in Washington, DC, yesterday for the annual EU-US Summit.

European Commission President José Manuel Barroso commended President Obama’s leadership on climate change stating that he “changed the climate on the climate negotiations.” President Barroso stressed that with the strong leadership of the United States an agreement on climate change would be possible. “We are working toward a framework agreement in Copenhagen that will be an important agreement for the world. And we had particularly a very good discussion on this today and I think it was one of the most important points of our exchange.”

The summit also focused on ways for the EU and the US to cooperate on global challenges, including economic recovery and growth and providing effective assistance to developing countries. A number of foreign policy issues, including the situation in the Middle East and Afghanistan, were also discussed.

In conjunction with the Summit, a newly established EU-US Energy Council also met for first time today to deepen bilateral energy cooperation and address the growing challenges of global energy security, sustainability and climate change.
